Ibex Makes its Denver Debut Just in Time for Winter

Dear Denver and honorary members of the Ibex flock,

The time has come. In mere days, our newest Ibex store in Denver, CO will be holding a Grand Opening celebration at 250 Columbine Street in Cherry Creek North!

On Saturday, December 10, we’ll be celebrating all things Merino from 12pm-8pm – just in time for the holidays. Not only will you be able to browse our newest line of clothing for the outdoors and rub elbows with fellow outdoor enthusiasts, we’re throwing in a few perks too.

Arrive early as we kick things off at noon with a gift bag of Ibex goodies and other Vermont-y swag for the first 50 attendees. Stay for the afternoon and join us for a Merry Match game, raffle drawings, hot cider, light snacks, and of course, free gift wrapping. Happy hour starts at 5:00 pm and we’re whipping up a special Vermont-inspired cocktail and will have delicious hors d’oeuvres, Wyoming Whiskey, Colorado beers, and wine.

Why is Ibex coming to the Rockies? With adventures around every corner and locals bragging about the average 300+ days of sunshine a year, we couldn’t resist. We know that people who love Ibex also love to squeeze adventure out of every second of the day, so we made this list of things to do in and around Denver for those few moments when you aren’t busy gift shopping for your favorite outdoor adventurer.

Running in Wash Park

Lace up your running shoes, pull on your all-season Indie Crew and head out the door for a loop around Wash Park. The breathable Merino fabric lets you pick up the stride and soar past giant Aspens and pines just blocks from downtown.

Snowshoe in Indian Peaks

It’s hard to top an early morning snowshoe complete with a warm beverage, jaw-dropping views, a few close friends and the Loden Hat to top things off and keep in warmth. Just a short trip from the city, Indian Peaks feel like a world away from the urban jungle.

Sledding at Ruby Hill Park

The thrill of zooming down a hill on a sled never gets old! Slip on a good base layer like the Woolies 1 Bottoms, grab your sled of choice and head to Ruby Hill Park. As one of the highest points in Denver, you’ll be rewarded with breathtaking views of the city and mountains before you plummet down the hill head first.

Skiing and Snowboarding at Copper Mountain

Head for the hills… and then keep going ‘til you get to Copper Mountain. World class skiing is only a short drive from the Ibex store in Cherry Creek North. When the temperature drops, you’ll be glad you have the Wool Aire Matrix Hoody to keep sweat and the chill out and warmth in.

Cozy up with a Book at the Tattered Cover

Even the burliest of lumberjacks needs a cozy afternoon with a book and a nice espresso. Head to Denver’s Tattered Cover, find the book that suits you, select your caffeine vice and curl up in your Taos Plaid Shirt for a good read. See our book recommendations here.
